The official website for the television anime of Toshiya Wakabayashi's Tsuredure Children (Idle Children) manga began streaming its first short promotional video on Wednesday. The video shows a scene where a boy gives an umbrella to a girl who forgot hers, and then they walk home together in the rain. In her narration, the girl says, "I'm sorry, is it embarrassing to walk home with a girl?"
The anime will premiere in July. The series will air on Tokyo MX on Tuesdays at 11:15 p.m., on Sun TV on Tuesdays from 24:15 (effectively Wednesdays at 12:15 a.m.), and on BS11 on Tuesdays at 26:15 (effectively Wednesdays at 2:15 a.m.). Each episode will be 15 minutes long.

- Inori Minase as Chizuru Takano
- Tomoaki Maeno as Takeru Gōda
- Yui Ogura as Ayaka Kamine

Hiraku Kaneko (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, Manyū Hiken-chō) is directing the anime at Studio Gokumi, and Tatsuhiko Urahata (Saki, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Haganai NEXT) is in charge of the series scripts. Etsuko Sumimoto (Yurikuma Arashi) is designing the characters.
Inori Minase is performing the anime's opening theme song, and Yui Ogura is performing the ending theme song.
The four-panel manga is dedicated "to those of you who can't say 'I love you.'" The manga chronicles a series of short school romance stories in an omnibus format.
